NASHOBA FC MERGES WITH STRIKERS UNITED!

 

11/11/2017

Dear Players and NFC families,

Today Nashoba FC agreed to merge with Strikers United.   We wanted this merger to be seamless for our players and families.  Based on the options available, the Nashoba FC board felt this was the most logical union.   Synergies from this merger will create development opportunities for soccer players along the Route 2 corridor.  This merger unites two clubs that have similar development philosophies.   In addition, the Strikers organization has a unique association with the New England Revolution Academy, and a longstanding relationship with the Boston Breakers.  

This merger provides our teams with more resources and development opportunities.  Our winter indoor training will be held throughout the winter at the Mill Works (Westford, MA), a new indoor facility.  Winter indoor training will include 17 one-hour practice sessions held on Mondays or Wednesdays.  The schedule will be released shortly.  

In the spring, our outdoor practices will be split between the fields in MYSA (Lancaster) and the Striker fields in Boxborough.     

What does this mean for the Nashoba FC family?  The club will operate under the Stikers United name immediately.  The rosters, coaches, and uniforms will remain the same through the spring season.  The club expenses will operate through the Nashoba FC budget til June 2018.  ALL OUTSTANDING EXPENSES WILL BE PAID TO NASHOBA FC on terms and payment plans agreed upon.  There will be no additional costs as we will operate under our existing player contract.  At the end of the spring season, any excess funds will be used to subsidize the purchase of Striker United uniforms for players whose accounts are paid in full and remain with Strikers United.   

Kind regards.
